Bike Week 2024

Bike Week 2024: A Celebration of Cycling Culture

Greetings from Westport Bike Shop! As the pedals turn and gears shift, Bike Week 2024 is fully up and running! From the 11th to the 19th of May, the streets will come alive with the spirit of cycling, and we’re here to give you the inside scoop.

What is Bike Week?

Bike Week is not just an event; it’s a movement. It’s a time when the community comes together to celebrate the joy, freedom, and health benefits of cycling. This year, Bike Week promises a plethora of activities for everyone, from the casual rider to the seasoned cyclist. Expect community bike rides, cycling safety tips, workshops on bike maintenance, and discussions on the future of cycling in Ireland and beyond.

Why Bikes?

Bikes are more than just a mode of transportation; they are a way of life. They represent an eco-friendly alternative to cars, a way to stay fit, and a means to explore the world with a different lens. The humble bicycle has a rich history, evolving from a simple two-wheeled contraption to a sophisticated machine that caters to various needs – be it commuting, cargo, racing, or leisurely rides through the countryside.

At Westport Bike Shop, we believe that every bike has a story. Whether it’s a rugged mountain bike that’s seen the peaks and valleys of adventure or a sleek road bike that’s raced against the wind, each one holds memories and miles within its frame. During Bike Week, we invite you to create new stories and share old ones as we delve into the world of bikes.

What’s Happening in Westport?

With so much cycling track on our doorstep in Westport it’s easy to get involved in Bike Week 2024. Just hop on your bike and hit for the Greenway for some safe family cycling. Explore the Quay, hit for Murrisk, or take off for Newport. All easy routes for all ages and abilities.

At Westport Bike Shop we are getting involved by joining forces with 15-Minute Westport and Scoil Phádraig for a Cargo Bike Exhibition Day. We will have some of the best in cargo and e-bikes on display for test rides and to showcase all the pros of getting cycling for you and the family.

Join us on Saturday the 18th May, from 11am-2pm at Scoil Phádraig on the Newport Road and see for yourself.

Cargo Bike Exhibition Day 2024

Bike Week is more than a celebration; it’s a reminder of the impact we can have on our environment and communities by choosing to pedal rather than drive. It’s about connecting with others who share a passion for two wheels and the open road.

So, mark your calendars, pump up your tyres, and get ready to join us for Bike Week 2024. Let’s ride towards a healthier, greener, and more connected world. See you there!
